2014 BMW R1200GS Adventure First Look
BMW Motorrad gives its liquid-cooled R1200GS the expected Adventure treatment for the 2014 model year.

The GSA makes use of a larger windscreen, but retains the GS's convenient hand knob adjustability.
Engine alterations for the Adventure model include a heavier flywheel mass, up 2.1 pounds, to smooth engine operations at low revs for better off-road performance.
A vibration damper has also been added between the gearbox output and shaft drive on the 2014 GS Adventure.
Chassis upgrades for the Adventure model include an extra 0.8 inches of suspension travel for BMW’s proprietary Telelever front (8.3 inches) and Paralever rear (8.7 inches).
Ergonomic changes to the 2014 GS Adventure include a 1.5 inch-taller seat height – the two-position settings at 35.0 and 35.8 inches.
The Adventure gains an extra 0.4 inches of ground clearance compared to the base R1200GS.
The 2014 BMW R1200GS Adventure carries a 7.9-gallon fuel load, 2.6 more than the standard GS.
Off-road friendly tweaks for the GS Adventure include wider footpegs and reinforced, adjustable foot controls.
The GSA may get overshadowed by the standard R1200GS, which is BMW’s all-time best selling motorcycle, but the R1200GS Adventure as its second-highest selling model in the Motorrad lineup.
The extra fuel and other off-road add-ons to the R1200GS Adventure jack the claimed curb weight up to 573 pounds – 48 more than the standard GS.
